Current Textile-Labeling Requirements: Disruptive and Transforming?
In response to U.S. Federal Trade Commission’s (FTC) call for rigorous research and public discourse about green and/or sustainability-related labeling practices in textiles and apparel for policy improvement, this project proposes to hold a summit in order to establish relationships and to create a new collaborative network among MU faculty, consumer advocacy groups, policy makers and policy administrators. Through these networking activities, we expect to situate MU as a MAJOR contact/collaborator for FTC’s textile label regulation efforts. At the moment, there is no other academic institution with which FTC is collaborating with on this topic. This project supports Managing Innovation and Sustainable Energy initiatives.
